LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

The notorious apology

Dear Editor,

HH has finally apologised his way to the front page of the Post newspaper. What a shame, what a disgrace but more importantly what an eye opener.

It shows that no price is too high for the UPND leader to pay to find himself at State House. HH and his minders must know that the cartel is among the most loathed institutions in the country at the moment given the grave offences committed against the people of Zambia.

Zambians haven’t forgotten that late President Michael Sata was held hostage for the special campaign favour he obtained. There is no reason to doubt that the same thing will happen to HH if he ever got into power because of the alliance he has just bought through an apology.

If HH were to resist, he will suffer the same fate that third Republican President Levy Mwanawasa suffered when he disagreed with the cartel. He was called all manner of names which made his life very miserable and difficult considering that he was suffering from various illness.

Who can forget the insults the newspaper through Roy Clarke heaped on Mwanawasa illness and the many pills he was taking. That was the cruellest display of inhumanity ever. May his soul rest in peace.

It is the greatest of folly and naivety if HH thinks he can ride into State House through front page insults and never mortgage his presidency. Others have tried before and have failed.

That apology  reveals  in no uncertain terms that both sides have thrown principles to the wind in the interest of an opportunity to enter state house. It has been done before and they are hoping that it will be done again.

This is underrating the intelligence of the Zambian people, who know that once bitten twice shy.

Where were they?

Dear Editor

A wise man once said that evil prevails when good people keep quiet. The recent assault on our party by well known questionable people cannot go without a comment.

Ever since our party the MMD lost elections in 2011, we have passed through a cocktail of trying moments. In 2012, when Mr Rupiah Banda resigned as party president, our then National Secretary, Major. Richard Kachingwe and the National Executive Committee (NEC) decided to call for an Extra-Ordinary Convention to elect a new President who would be empowered and protected by the Party Constitution.

Dr. Nevers Mumba won the elections with 70% of the vote beating his closest rival Hon. Felix Mutati. The Presidency of Dr. Mumba has suffered attacks from the word go. Dr. Mumba has been teargassed, beaten, locked up, insulted, called all sorts of names, kicked and locked up for his love for MMD.

So we are shocked in the words of Dr. Kenneth D. Kaunda, by these “Little Frightened Men” who have woken up from the long sleep and misguided themselves and their minions that Dr. Mumba has failed. We are shocked that they can claim that Dr. Mumba has failed when they have never supported his Presidency and the party.

Where were they when our party was de-registered by the Registrar of Societies? Where were they when our Parliamentary seats were petitioned and nullified? Where were they when our members stood in the by-elections in those nullified seats and why didn’t they ever campaign for them?

Where were they when our party vehicles were impounded? Where were they when President Banda was being prosecuted and going to court? We never saw them at the various court hearings. There are so many questions we would love to ask them, but we rest our case.

We shall continue to rally behind a true son of the soil and the party who has put the well-being of MMD before his own. Ifintu ni “Don’t Kutina” all the way with Dr Nevers Sekwila Mumba!!

Bweengwa violence n must be condemned 

Dear Editor,

It is almost two weeks since the UPND cadres caused havoc and mayhem in Bweenga where they even abducted civil servants and yet there has been no condemnation from the leadership.

The notion that Southern Province belongs to the UPND must be seriously challenged by the entire nation to avoid fragmentation of the country.

Every part of the country must be open to all citizens regardless of tribe, political affiliation or religious belief.

It is a great pity that the police seem to be dragging their feet in investigating and arresting the culprits responsible for these reprehensible activities.

The Police must move more quickly to show an example in the same manner they have arrested PF cadres on the Copperbelt who misconducted themselves. The same law must apply to the Southern Province.

Unless this is done it will show bias and unfairness in the manner are handling cases by the UPND.

M.B.
